FagottoBooks was founded in 1984. Right from the start, this Greek publishing house brought a new perspective to the way of learning music. Books full of life and enjoyment, with the complement of auxiliary acoustic material (audio tapes then, CD and online audio today), opened the way to amateur musicians, concerning the approach of the instrument they were interested in. All books are based on the understanding that music is not a forbidden ground for the non specialists, neither is its learning an ascetic occupation of few.

Today, the way we study music changes, because music itself changes. New kinds of music emerge, new instruments are invented. The tendency to different music cultures taking part equally in the international music stage is strengthened. Technology transforms the music field. Computers, virtual reality and Internet discover new possibilities for composition, performance, production, storing and management of the musical creation. What is the basic music knowledge that has to be transmitted to the student and to the lover of music in the 21st century? What competences should the student develop, so that he can come up to the contemporary musical demands? What are the most adequate ways to the lover of music considering the research of basic concepts and the principles of the music system? FagottoBooks responds to these questions by offering, to an audience interested in music, books that meet today's demands.

The company has its headquarters in downtown Athens, in the district of Exarcheia, a place where many intellectuals and artists live. Besides the publications office, the space also accommodates its main Music Store and Bookshop where you can find all FagottoBooks editions, Greek and foreign artists' repertoire, educational music books, all Greek editions concerning music, music gifts and educational percussion. Recently the company opened a branch office and bookshop in Lefkada oriented to travel and other thematics.
